About Us

Williamsburg Memorial Park is a nonprofit, multi-denominational cemetery established in 1962. Our cemetery is built on the historic plantation of Benjamin Stoddert Ewell, the 16th president of The College of William & Mary and a colonel in the Confederate Army. We’re located just 15 minutes northwest of Colonial Williamsburg on 41 acres of beautifully manicured property, situated within a natural forest.

Upon arrival, a winding drive gently guides you from our discreet, wooded entranceway to a lush green open space featuring stately trees, manicured shrubs, and a bouquet of seasonal colors. At the center of our park, you’ll discover a towering marble statue of a majestic crane–the centerpiece of our cemetery and the inspiration behind our new logo. In the distance, you’ll see Ewell Hall, a magnificent plantation house built in 1848.

Our Commitment to You

To meet the changing needs of our clients, Williamsburg Memorial Park is committed to ongoing improvements. In the past decade, we’ve added a 1,500 square-foot community mausoleum, 115 cremorials, improved family estate options, and a consecrated area for our Jewish families.

In the spring of 2013, we completed construction on a new 3,600-square-foot, state-of-the-art customer care center, shown at right. This new facility features easier access, a more comfortable environment, public restrooms, and the latest cemetery technology. This is where you'll meet with one of our Family Service Counselors to discuss your immediate or pre-planning needs.

But to truly appreciate our picturesque and peaceful park, we invite you to see it yourself. Call us today to schedule a private, no-obligation tour.
